New Romantics

I've always been a fan of the New Romanticism movement in 80s music, and you can't talk about New Romantics without mentioning Steve Strange, his band Visage, and their mega-hit "Fade to Grey."

While I haven't seen any hint that this actually got a wide release---in fact, even Wikipedia fails to mention the name of the band at all---here's an interesting remake of "Fade to Grey" from a few years ago, by Welsh teenagers DV8. It's interesting, because Strange himself makes an extended cameo, playing the villain in this bizarre and obviously Tron-influenced music video.

Anyway... enjoy.
